cwfThe  Charitable Works Fund (CWF) appeal is being held this weekend 9/10 November, and we are excited to show you the video that was recently filmed at Our Lady Help of Christians church, Epping-Carlingford Parish.  The video is about Rachel and Clare. Two catechists who attended a public school in our Diocese and who received a Catholic Special Religious Education through the CCD. Clare even converted to Catholicism thanks to her positive experience with the CCD. We are grateful for the 31 catechists who play an important role in the faith formation of 800 children in our Parish. Perhaps you or someone you know has benefited from a Catholic Religious Education class in a NSW Public School, made possible through donations of the faithful?
Donations to the Charitable Works Fund help our community through five charities and agencies that serve the people in our Diocese. These are:

  • ·Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD),
  • ·Catholic Care Hospital Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care Practitioners,
  • ·St Lucy’s School, St Edmund’s College
  • ·Ephpheta Centre

Donations to the CWF are Tax-Deductible.
